If Hands Like Houses and Pvris had a kid and made it listen to Bring Me The Horizon post-2015, the result would be All Things End by Artio.
Almost a reassuring love letter to a departed soul, All Things End encompasses a personal account of the conflicting relationship between mortality and everlasting love, with a beautiful blend of rock and pop emulating the range of emotions and styles that the band are capable of.
All Things End grabs you by the heartstrings with a gentle, loaded melody at the beginning, letting you know that there may be some feels incoming very soon. The electronic subs that introduce the singer are fleeting, and by the time the first verse has finished, the song has just about marinaded your soul perfectly in time for the uplifting chorus.
By the second verse, you’re left admiring All Things End. The dark tone of the lyrics contrasting the overwhelming sound of hope from the music allows the mind to wander and picture how this would be replicated live. Maybe an outside stage at a rock festival, singing along and having the time of your life.
With the extra kick in the second chorus, the song really picks up and overwhelms the listener with the feel-good vibrations that are emanating from the speakers. A sombre, sobering melody acts as a motif to anchor the track, bringing things to a perfect close. All Things End is undoubtedly chart-worthy and will strike a chord with anyone who likes their music gentle and uplifting with a melancholic undertone.
